    12th ave and where? E.22nd? Call me kooky but something tells me that this is drug/gang related

      Not drug or gang related.. Everything that happens is not always that… If people dont like your looks or want your girl. They murder you. What about the people that work and have to walk through to get home and get caught in the cross fire. No disrespect stop being that way all things dont happen because of gangs or drugs. Thats just your opinion.

      • MarquinhoGaucho

        That is what apparently happened here a worker got caught in the crossfire between 2 gangs. But yes I agree with you these youngins will shoot you over a happy meal. Also these dope fiends rob people they dont care if your with your kid anymore. Savage animals

    what do people expect hanging out in the streets ? the only results you will get is death, hospital, or jail. and yet from all the tragedies that occur in the “hood” they still be out there.

      Instead of thinking you know what youre talking actually speak facts. He wasnt "hanging out in the hood" he went in the store , walked out and got hit by a stray bullet intended for someone else. Even though thats no better dont just speak what you think you know. Have a blessed day

      • Toonchi

Now a days people are scared to go to the store or have a conversation with someone in the streets even afraid to go out after 6 whats wrong with this world the devil is snatching our young men getting into their minds . people pray. For your children and others cause my God its aweful .. Another mother who lost her child.. My condolences
